This is the second session in the series “The Life of a Stormwater Practice.” This series will explore all the elements that promote successful implementation of stormwater management best management practices (BMPs). The types of BMPs used in a community starts with the local development and stormwater codes. Individual BMPs first come into focus during the design process. Much of the ultimate success of a BMP depends on what occurs in the field during initial installation of the practice. Finally, long-term maintenance must be managed to maintain the original function, performance, and value of the BMP.
Information about this session: Even if a stormwater practice is properly designed and installed, the long-term maintenance can make or break the performance and community acceptance. Learn from the trenches ways to rapidly conduct maintenance inspections and needed maintenance tasks. Doing this will prevent future costly repairs. The webcast will also address how local governments can build a successful stormwater maintenance program.
